5: All the President's Data?

This episode could be entitled: REvil III as they make a further unwelcome appearance on our show. Now they are demanding a huge ransom from no lesser figure than the President of the United States himself, does that make them terrorists? And Kev went digging around in the Anubis Android malware only to make a quite shocking discovery.

About the Podcast

Cyber Humanity
The podcast taking cybersecurity personally
There's a lot of cool techy stuff going down in cybersecurity, and we love it. But you can't deny that a lot of the time we humans get forgotten. Our podcast takes a not-so-serious look at issues in security from a human point of view. Covering social engineering to hacker motivations and everything in between, we chat through security stories and themes and what they mean to us: the oft-neglected humans behind the screen. Apart from Kev, Kev is a cyborg.

These weekly podcasts come in two main flavors. We’re either ranting about themes close to the heart of us security types, or we’re discussing threats and vulnerabilities that have hit headlines – or slipped under the radar – in recent weeks.

Join Camille Mallon (tech advocate and keeper of the coloring pencils), Kev Breen (pro blue teamer, also known as 'Mr Nothing to CVE here...'), Emma Walker (), and other special guests as they wend their way through the murky world of Cyber Humanity.
